Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Human 5-HT1A Receptor Binding Assay
Description:  Human HEK-293 cell homogenates (36 μg protein) were incubated at 22 C. for 60 minutes with 0.3 nM [3H]8-0H-DPAT (Perkin-Elmer) in the absence or presence of the test compound in a buffer solution containing 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.4), 10 mM MgSO4, 0.5 mM EDTA and 2 μg/ml aprotinine.The non-specific binding value was determined by incubating the same mixture in the presence of 10 μM 8-OH-DPAT, which was used as the standard reference compound and tested in each experiment at several concentrations to obtain a competition curve.Following the incubation, the samples were filtered rapidly under vacuum through glass fiber filter (GF/B, Packard) presoaked with 0.3% PEI and rinsed several times with ice-cold 50 mM Tris-HCl using a 96-sample cell harvester (Unifilter, Packard). The filters were dried and the retained radioactivity was measured in a scintillation counter (Topcount, Packard) using a scintillation cocktail (Microscint 0, Packard). The experimental results were expressed as a percent inhibition of the control radioligand specific binding.Data AnalysisBinding assay of [3H] 8-OH-DPAT (0.3 nM) with 5-HT1A receptor in human HEK-293 cell was tested by scintillation proximity assay of membrane. The test compounds were required to be tested at least three times in the case of the concentration thereof being greater than 6 log, and the obtained data were subjected to a nonlinear regression analysis via a curve of Hill equation, to obtain IC50 value, and then calculated by ChengPrusoff equation to obtain Ki value, and Ki was the inhibition constant.
